Assessment and Accountability in Higher Education: A Program's Response
O'Dell, Irma
Educational Considerations, v37 n1 p4-10 Fall 2009
Pressure from external stakeholders increasingly requires higher education institutions to provide concrete evidence of student learning. As such, assessment of student learning has become a significant part of the process of determining institutional quality. This article describes an example of one of university's response to the call for greater accountability for student learning outcomes and how one school within this university has responded to it. The article concludes with reflections on next steps for meeting future assessment expectations. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table and 6 endnotes.)
